While the second installment of the Iron Man series is in post production, word out of H’wood is that Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau are set to team again in another movie.  This isn’t news about a third Iron Man (although I wouldn’t write that one off), but rather Platinum Studios Cowboys and Aliens movie adaptation.  Downey has been signed to star in the movie for a while, but now with Favreau on board as director, expect this movie to start moving through the Hollywood Machine pretty quickly.

The sci-fi Western explores what would happen if the traditional Old West enemies — cowboys and Native Americans — found the prairie attacked by aliens in mid-1800s Arizona.

And even though there is a pretty bad taste in everyone’s mouths about Platinum Studios (go check the archives) the company has been able to bring some pretty big names on board the project, including Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who wrote the relaunched Star Trek franchise movie, and that Transformers movie as well.
